Re: SO i got 3 tickets the other day and im wondering...

Were they fix it tickets, or just flat out tickets? Often with tickets like these if you remove the offending items and then either bring the car to the courthouse so that it can be seen, or a new/current picture of the car showing that they've been removed then they'll dismiss the tickets.

You might want to check your local laws as to what you can be cited for. Not that I think you have a leg to stand on as far as the blue fog lights and pretty much nowhere allows you to have blue exterior lighting as it can make you look like a cop. How dark is your tint? How much is legal in your area? For the tail lights as long as they're still clearly visible during the day and at night then it shouldn't be an issue, though again check local regs.

In Michigan, nothing is legal on the front two windows. Blue lights are a big no no, anywhere. I've never seen a ticket for the back light tint, unless you cannot see light through them.... pics?

If you've never gotten a ticket for these items before, you may be able to have a cop sign off on them, once removed.

Re: SO i got 3 tickets the other day and im wondering...

that sucks man out here a cop would def pull u over for blue fogs but i typically dont see cops pull people over for tinted tailights or tint unless the tints like super dark limo tint........but typically what i see is you get more hassled for tint if they pulled u over for something else originally i.e. speeding lol.......... and +1 what icespots said i would see about getting some of them dismissed or all....

Are the Michigan State Police the ones with the single old school red dome on the top as a light?

Either that cop must have been in a really pissed off mood, or you acted like a real jackass. 3 tickets in one stop, and no moving violation? That's ridiculous.
